Scientific Computing 101 using Python

On 21 May, I conducted a workshop on Scientific Computing 101 using Python. Over the course of 3 hours, I introduced the Numpy and Pandas packages. The participants practiced using the packages in Jupyter Notebooks. It was a great learning experience for me to make the slides and deliver the material. I did a workshop at IIT Madras earlier on the same topic but this one was better planned and cleaner content.

The content was delivered using Jupyter Notebooks, which can be found on my github repository. I have been working on the notebooks to add documentation, references and a few exercises. I will keep adding more exercises in time.

Going forward, the participants were interested in a followup workshop, with a focus on data science, which I presume means Machine Learning using scikit-learn. Let's see how that goes. Until next time.
